Police believe the explosion was the result of an ATM bombing just after 2am, on the corner of Market and Kerk streets.
According to The Midrand Report, it was the tavern at the Midrand Taxi Rank, Ipintombi, which collapsed, but police are still unsure of the cause and said that until a full investigation had been conducted they could not speculate on what happened.
That said, other sources report a Constable Elias Mabonda as saying, “Four people, who live in shacks behind the building, were injured as the two-storey building collapsed.â?
Netcare911 tweeted that two were injured in the collapse.
No suspects have been arrested.
